Description

This project rehabilitated 154 km of the Alternative North-South highway in Kyrgyzstan, sections Kyzyl-Jyldyz - Aral (km 183-195) and Karzarman - Jalal-Abad (km 291-433). It is the first phase of a larger, 3-stage project that will cost $850 million and construct a 433km road connecting the Kyrygz cities of Balykchy and Jalal-Abad. The construction of this Alternative Road will have profound effects on the ability to transport Chinese exports to Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and other surrounding countries through Kyrgyzstan.
